About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Paulele is a beautiful Hawaiian-style home just across the beach road from breathtaking Hanalei Bay! This tasteful and comfortable home has four bedrooms, five baths, a fully-equipped kitchen, and it comes with everything you’ll need for a wonderful visit to this 'Old Hawaii' Garden Island paradise.

You’ll enjoy spectacular ocean, mountain, and waterfall views from many areas of the home and the world-renowned Hanalei Point surf break is in full view from the convenience of your front porch! With the short path to the beach just one lot over, you're 100 yards from the bay. There are two identical master suites, each with king beds, spacious bathrooms, as well as private entrances and lanais. The third bedroom has two twin beds and full bath with tub, while the lower level fourth bedroom has a king bed, shower bath, and private entrance.

For your comfort and convenience, there is an outdoor bamboo enclosed hot water shower, laundry room, covered shuffleboard court, and covered hammock, as well as lots of beach gear (beach towels, mats, chairs, umbrellas, and kids boogie boards) and yard games (horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton and croquet). The oceanview dining area seats eight, with additional stools at the bar and a four chair game table with plenty of games, puzzles, and books. Many guests feel our home to be a destination in itself with so many comfortable areas to spend time.

And best of all, the warm water and beautiful sand beach of Hanalei Bay is just across the street! Generally, the ocean is calm in the summer and surf is bigger in the winter, sometimes reaching ‘big wave’ status. Located within ten minutes of several north shore beaches, you’ll have many options for swimming, surfing, wind and kite surfing, snorkeling, and many other activities. The famous NaPali Coast trail has its main access ten minutes down the road. A short walk from the home is quaint Hanalei town with its many shops and restaurants.

Hanalei Bay is one of Hawaii’s most beautiful and pristine beaches, with only private homes, no hotels or condos, built on the beach. With Paulele, you’ll have the pleasure of walking to the beach any time of day, from the solitude of sunrise to the glory of a Hanalei sunset, while having all the comforts of home. And unlike those in Princeville and other parts of the island who have to drive to the beach at Hanalei, you’re already there! We love our Hanalei home and trust that like guests before you, you will too! For more photos or a virtual tour, see our web site link below. Aloha!

About Anne Newman

We first fell in love with Kauai during our family's first visit in May, 1992. While my husband insisted we couldn't possibly leave our business for a two week vacation, I planned a week on Napili Bay on Maui and a second week on the South Shore of Kauai. In the middle of that second week, we ventured up to the North Shore. I can still remember the feeling as we first arrived at Hanalei Bay. 'Ahh, this is it!' I proclaimed, and, for us, it has remained so.

The beauty of the Bay was so stunning it felt surreal. The lush green mountains were lined with waterfalls and the Bay seemed to stretch on forever. There was hardly anyone on the beach and no hotels down on the Bay. It felt as if we had gone back in time to the 'Old Hawaii' of my dreams. ...Plantation style homes dotting the beachfront with lots of wide open spaces...

By 1996, we knew we would always want to come to Hanalei and we started looking to buy a home. We started renting the home that is now Paulele, but it was not for sale. We looked for 3 years at just about everything that came up for sale in Hanalei, but didn't like anything as much as this house. 'We need to trust', I told my husband. 'Have faith that if it's meant to be, it will happen'.

Well, it did. Without ever going on the market, the previous owners finally succumbed to our persistence and sold us the home in 1999. We named it 'Paulele' which means to believe, have faith and trust.

In Hanalei, magic happens. Come visit. We hope you enjoy our home and Hanalei as much as we do.

Anne Newman purchased this house in 1999

Why Anne Newman chose North Shore

At Paulele, the beach is always just a few steps away any time of day. Whether an early morning stroll, a mid-day swim or surf, or a gorgeous sunset, it's all right out in front of you. If you need groceries or want to treat yourself to a dinner out, no need to get in the car. Just walk into town and it's all there. We love our location for these and many reasons!

What makes this house unique

We hope you enjoy the activities that we've offered right at Paulele. We love shuffleboard, horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton and croquet, so we have all of them right there for you to enjoy in our fantastic yard. Do you love to read? I do, so you'll find a bookshelf waiting for you. Plenty of deck space, both sunny and covered, for you to relax and a bamboo enclosed hot water shower that we built ourselves are other nice features. And can anyone really get away without internet? It's there if you need it!

Great trip with the guys

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this area of Kauai a few times before and always wanted to stay in Hanalei. I love the laid back town, beach and the fact it's not over developed. The Paulele Beach House was a great base to explore the area which has so much to offer. We were a group of 4 adults having a reunion of sorts and never ran out of things to do while never traveling more than a few miles from the house. The house is very well equipped with everything you could need and we especially enjoyed riding around on the cruiser bikes. Only note on the house which may not be obvious is that each room has its own entrance and are separate from the main house (which has one of the bedrooms). This worked great for us may be an issue for those with children. Also 3 of the 4 rooms are great but the one downstairs by the shuffle board court is a bit dark and has no view. Again not an issue for use since we put our early to bed person in that room since it is quiet. Had a great time and appreciated all the communication with Anne.

A Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

My family (of six adults) stayed here over Thanksgiving. The home is beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. What we loved most is the privacy of each of the bedrooms, which allowed everyone to come and go as they pleased.

The front living room and balcony have beautiful views and we enjoyed sitting each morning enjoying coffee together. The house is on a private lot with a large backyard and one of our favorite activities in the morning was racing to the avocado tree to pick up fresh fallen avocados before the chickens got to them! Such a treat to have delicious avocadoes everyday!

The location was perfect! A 5 min walk into town and a 5 min walk to the beach. The owner Anne has provided everything you need for beach fun (chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas) even a beach buggie so you don't have to lug you stuff! We enjoyed many afternoons together on the beach, playing in the pacific.

The house is in top condition and the owner is very organized, accessible and responsive. Anne is very communicative and one of the things we really appreciated was the care that was taken in providing helpful and useful information about the house and the town. Our stay was trouble free and so easy! I would highly recommend this property and we hope to stay here again! So many memories we will cherish forever. Mahalo!

Great House in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This year our group of 5 celebrated our 10th, 2-week stay at Paulele. We love the spaciousness of the house and lanai and the short walk to the beach. Another big plus is that the 3 bedrooms we utilize have their own bathrooms and there is an extra bathroom with shower off the living area. The kitchen is well-stocked and beach chairs, towels, etc. are provided. We appreciate the upgrades that have been made throughout the years -- a wagon for hauling our stuff to the beach was added this year. Our 2017 stay is already booked and we can hardly wait!

A lovely place in every way

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this beautiful home was a real treat for our extended family of seven adults. It is situated in a wonderful location that is at once private and very convenient to both the town and one of the nicest beaches in the world. The house is maintained in top condition and the owner is very accessible and responsive. One of the things we really appreciated was the care that was taken in providing helpful and useful information about the house, the island and the town of Hanalei. They literally thought of everything. We've stayed in many vacation rentals, but none have been as thorough and meticulous in paving the way for their guests to have a trouble-free experience. We would gladly stay in this home again and have already recommended it to friends. A true Aloha experience.

Wonderful House, Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house, just as described, maybe even better. What makes this place so wonderful is the location to Hanalei Beach and the Village of Hanalei. A short 5 minute walk and you are on the beach. They have provided everything you need for beach fun even including a beach cart so you don't have to lug you stuff over your shoulder! The house was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that while we were there they even had someone come and replace a ceiling fan that was noisy without us even mentioning it. I have worse fans in my own house that still aren't replaced! We had a minor plumbing issue and the owner had a repair person to the house very promptly and it was taken care of. The two suites in the back (an Upper and Lower Suite) are so comfortable and quiet except for the chickens! Had avocados right outside the door and a lovely back yard. Probably my favorite feature was the outside shower. We were there over a week and most of us didn't even use the indoor showers because the outdoor one was so nice and convenient. The only other thing that was better was getting to know the owner - Anne. She was so helpful and gracious to share her lovely home. I called her a few times to ask questions and she was always pleasant and happy to help. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives and hopefully will be able to return and enjoy it again soon!
